If you are like most women in America, you:
want to lose extra weight but you can’t
don’t have time to beyond the depravation and binge circuit
feel constipated and/or experience diarrhea
have low energy except after caffeine and sugar
feel guilty about eating enjoyable food
don’t have time to take care of yourself
want to eat what’s right for you but feel conflicted if others are eating differently
struggle with listening to what your body wants rather than what society says you “should”
try different restrictions – low carb, low fat, vegarian – with little or no lasting success
eat whatever’s around because you didn’t plan ahead
think you’ll be happier if you just lose those _____ pounds
eat to deal with stress, depression, anxiety, sadness, boredom, and excitement
feel less than inspired about making healthy meals
don’t know where to start to your body back
The IDEAL WEIGHT / IDEAL LIFESTYLE LAB
helps you make the shifts you want to make, one baby step at a time
It’s not about making hard choices all day long.
It’s about establishing routines that become natural, just like brushing your teeth.
Then health… happens.
The routines, rhythms and recipes we’ll explore in the I WILL Lab are simplified versions of 5,000 year old Ayurvedic wellness practices.
These practices create a structure so that we don’t have to spend tons of time preparing food or pondering how to help ourselves get healthy.
Is it time to lose baby weight and experience radical vitality… without struggle and deprivation?
Picture your children following in your footsteps, eating what’s right for their bodies, honoring their natural rhythms, creating habits from easy, real self-care practices because it’s just what you do. Just like brushing your teeth.
Allow yourself to be nurtured by saying YES to guidance, support and inspiration!
The Ideal Weight/ Ideal Lifestyle Lab is a safe space created for busy people who want to finally make the shift into deep nourishment instead of instant gratification.
In the I WILL Lab you will be supported as you play with implementing new habits.
We provide you with simple ways to get healthy food into your body – without living in the kitchen!
We are on this journey together, everyone taking the steps which feel right for them and yet all of us moving in the same direction by following the same basic principles.
Discover an ease and a freedom with your eating habits that you maybe haven’t experienced before – ever.
And if you’ve never had this ease with food and your body…
…it’s not your fault.
Think about our culture and what it encourages.
Just walk into any gas station market or fast food restaurant and processed, fried and sugary food is everywhere, while whole vegetables and fruits are hard to come by.
We see daily false, retouched images of bodies giving us a sense that we are wrong and bad and not worth loving.
The lack of nutrients and the prevalance of unhealthy ingredients is astounding compared to other cultures.
And knowing doesn’t mean we’re immune.
So how do we make the shift from being Consumers to being Creators of our lives?
The “Ma” in “Ma Yoga Living” is about tapping into the intelligence, the immense power, and the nurturing energy within us. We can learn to align with it for ourselves, as well as our loved ones, so we awaken our intelligent cravings and put less energy into depriving and rewarding with food.
When we establish routines, patterns, and simple habits the result is our kids see these healthy choices as the norm. They may want sugary foods, but they know how to eat right.
As parents, we can say what we want to our children, and it has some affect. Our kids learn the most just by watching us.
We learn by trial and error.
Hi I’m Jessica.
When I had a baby, I realized how dependent I had been on running and grabbing ready made food.
I didn’t know the first thing about making my own healthy food and with my baby waking up every 3 hours, I didn’t have time or energy to be following recipes. I found myself eating my daughter’s Cheerios and goldfish, and I knew something had to change.
I took an online course in Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old sister science to yoga, and set out to find ways to incorporate these powerful wellness practices into my busy life.
The Ideal Weight / Ideal Lifestyle program – I WILL – isn’t a postpartum diet.
